Step 2: Configure top-of-rack switches

Configure the top-of-rack switches.

Before you begin

In addition to typical configuration requirements for top-of-rack switches, ensure that all appropriate ports are enabled, including the external ports to the Flex switches, rack servers, and network, and internal ports to the CMM, rack servers, and network.


The configuration steps might vary, depending on the type of rack switches that are installed.

For information about configuring Lenovo top-of-rack switches, see Rack switches in the System x online documentation. If another top-of-rack switch is installed, see the documentation that came with that switch.
